Hiking to the Lower Emerald Pools was as awesome as advertised. Didn’t expect a waterfall either and we got two. To catch the flow for a more silky look I took the shutter speed down to about a third of a second, just enough so that I could still do it handheld and not look too jittery (though multiple shots in rapid succession is also a good idea).

"The Great Gig In The Sky"
SO on Saturday night after work a few months ago i decided to leave out to the Alabama Hills I got to meet up with @derekvculver and @astrofalls, and a few other great photographer. Derek is retiring from photography due to sleep deprivation and the effects it has on his mind and body. Something you all know I suffer from on a day to day basis. . i took off on a solo mission into the rocks and decided to take some pictures on my own after hours of shooting with others. i ran into 2 tarantellas and a scorpion battling it out in the hills. Such a wicked sight to watch, but it made me extra careful of where i was stepping for a saw 4 more scorpions along my hike. Finally i arrived on the top of these huge boulders, and I took a chance and laid down on these rocks and stared up at probably one of the top 5 best milky ways. These moments you just have to sit and realize that the the universe is so big that a galaxy is so small, and a solar system is even smaller, and our planet is even smaller, and a country is even smaller, and our state is even smaller, and our city is even smaller and finally get down to us.... and we are tiny, not even a fraction of a pixel on the radar screen of life. But the part we focus on is our stress and problems, where are even smaller then we are... but we make them bigger than the universe. So sometimes staring at the universe puts things back into perspective and makes you not fret your issues. Its a beautiful story that shows you who you are, and you're worthless insignificant importance to the universe... but your massive worth to each other here. Its The Great Gig In The Sky.
